Caterpillars and Bird Boxes

Our babies have flown the nest! Yes, the Jungle caterpillars have  transformed into beautiful butterflies.  Once their wings were strong enough we set them free to dance in the summer sunshine.

In more news, the bird boxes that the Jungle class made with Nimble Fingers are now up around school and look fantastic. See if you can spot them!

Dee Four, Eviction Night!

​Our final day of activities at the Bendrigg Trust, sad times! We started the morning with the Maid Marion vs. King John arcery tournament, King Johns stole the win with a 20 point lead. Afterwards we hopped on the buses and went to explore Ingleborough Cave. The sights and sounds were fascinating and Rex taught us lots about how caves are formed. The sun was shining so we had a picnic and went off for a walk over Devils Bridge. We even saw the handprint where an angry devil jumped off the bridge into the water. What a fab day! We finished off with a party in the sensory room before bed. We are all feeling sad that tomorrow is our last day, but everyone is ready to see their families again!

Dee Three in The Bendrigg Ouse!

​The Bendrigg crew have had an adventurous time today. We started the day with a big breakfast. Then we headed off to the big swing, possibly not the best combination! We listened to our favourite songs and to top it off a school friend came to visit us with his little brother. After the morning rush we had some chill out time in the sensory room. We were back on form in the afternoon, heading straight to the zipwire. If that wasn't enough we even managed to fit in a trip up and down the climbing wall, where the adults joined in the fun too! Tomorrow is our trip to the Yorkshire dales to see a show cave, it's supposed to be really sunny again, hurrah!

An Infant Invasion!

​The Infants have been invaded! But it is ok there is no need to call pest control just yet as Space Pioneers have been invaded by Caterpillars'! They have grown so much in just four days we think we may need an extension to the classroom! We are really excited to see what happens with them next...

Fair Ways Garden Cemtre

Explorers class visited Fairways Garden Centre in Ashbourne. We all enjoyed travelling on our school minibuses together, driven by Sharon and Tracy.We were greeted by Debbie who helped us to make our own planters to take home. She showed us some ideas for a bug hotel that we would like to build in our little school garden. We visited the café for lunch and then we had some time looking around the shops, where some of us bought souvenirs of the visit. All of the staff at the centre made us feel very welcome and the children were a real credit to the school.We had a lovely day and it has given us lots of ideas for our own garden back at Horton Lodge.
